Hint : Conversion of units is the conversion between different units of measurement for the same quantity, typically through multiplicative conversion factors. Each meter (m) is divided into 100 equal divisions, called centimetre (cm) ie; 1m=100cm.


Complete solution:
We know the relation between metre and centimeter
1 meter = 100 centimeters
1 centimeter = 0.01 meter = 1⁄100 meters
Here we can say that a centimetre is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to one hundredth of a metre, in metric system, the prefix "centi" means "one hundredth of"
Also we can see in the scale below,

Therefore To convert meters to centimeters, multiply the number of meter by 100 and To convert centimeters to meters, divide the number of cm by 100 to get the number of meter

Metre to centimeter in tabular form
1 meter = 100 cm
2 meters = 200 cm
3 meters = 300 cm
4 meters = 400 cm
5 meters = 500 cm
6 meters = 600 cm
7 meters = 700 cm
8 meters = 800 cm
9 meters = 900 cm
10 meters = 1000 cm


Therefore, Each meter (m) is divided into 100 equal divisions, called centimetre (cm)

Hence, 1m=100cm .

Note:
Measure of length
10 millimeters (mm) = 1 centimeter (cm)
 10 centimeters = 1 decimeter (dm) = 100 millimeters
 100 centimeter = 1 meter (m) = 1,000 millimeters
 1000 meters = 1 kilometer (km)


After analyzing above table we can say that 10m=1000cm
